“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Last night was our second time at Madeo and once again they did not disappoint. This high end, celebrity hangout lives up to its reputation. The service is almost overwhelming. The wait staff is very professional, personable and eager to answer questions about the menu or the huge wine list. I’ve read reviews that were critical of the service, and frankly I don’t get it. The moment you sit down, a plate of focaccia, basket of bread and plate of cheese and olives appears. All of the pastas are homemade. The Bolognese is the best I’ve eaten outside of Italy. The roasted Leg of Veal, hand carved, melts in your mouth, and the Osso Buco was to die for. Save room for the dessert tray featuring homemade desserts. And to top it all off, the owner/chief, this little Italian man visits every table. This is a great place to go for a special occasion, or if you crave Italy, but can only get a far as WeHo

“Great Italian Food!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Was in recently with my daughter for dinner. The service is fantastic, and so is the food. The ambiance of the room is very relaxing. I thought it was a very nice touch that the owner speaks to everyone.Make sure you have a reservation.

“Good food, good place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

One of the best few italian restaurants in LA. They have the most delicious vongole and lobster spaghetti. The uni/sea urchin pasta is debatable, some people preferred the one in portofino, some liked it here. Its preference. But its still really good too! Grilled scampi was amazing and their napoleon dessert shouldnt be missed! I eat here at least once a month :D ohh and you also get to see many famous faces here!
